It’s so easy to forget how much we really have. Once I was complaining to a friend about all kinds of things … mostly about how things didn’t seem to be going well. She reminded me that I had 2 arms, 2 legs, my vision, my hearing and spoke a foreign language. I didn’t understand the foreign language part. She said, “English. To many, it’s a foreign language.” The point is, some people are deaf, blind or paralyzed. We’re not. Sure, we can always use more money or loose a few pounds, but the truth is, we have more than most and it’s worth focusing on what’s going right then what’s going wrong. It’s not about ignoring the business at hand. Ask for a solution, take a step toward that solution; then re-focus on being grateful. I’ve mentioned before that if you have running water in your home, you’re better off then 90% of the world. It seems impossible, but it’s true.
I’m constantly amazed at how some of the wealthiest people I know are constantly saying things like, “We’re so fortunate, or I’m so thankful that _____, or some form of appreciation. The more we keep our thoughts on the side of gratitude, the world seems to give us more to be grateful for. Like brings like. Things fall into place faster, easier and in a better way. Try repeating the affirmation 200 – 300 times in the next 24 hours and see if anything is different? It can’t hurt, and it’s free and easy. You’ve got nothing to loose.
Affirmation: I am grateful for all that I have.
